Handsome-ish again

I know, I know, it's been an AGE since I blogged. Did you miss me?

The Js and I have been caught up in all my medical stuff and it was getting kinda dull so I thought I'd wait until I was feeling a little bit perkier. Still having my regular vet trips but I think I'm finally over the worst. And I had a haircut today so I thought you might like to see me looking handsome-ish again. Still a bit lopsided from where I was shaved for surgery but now you can hardly see the join!



Regular (and eagle-eyed) readers may notice that the plant in the background is still clinging onto life. J1 hasn't QUITE managed to kill it yet...don't worry, she will...

In my last post I promised to show you some more of my pawsome birthday gifts so here goes...

My pals, Asta Marie, Toby and Dewey sent me 2 x bully sticks, a beautiful trinket box made by their clever human and a lobster stuffie. I'm afraid the lobster toy is no longer with us. I destroyed it yesterday, before this photoshoot.






Did you see the lovely WFT and the RAT on the box??? This is fantabulous! You may wonder what I was doing while this photo was being taken. Well, I was chewing on the other bully stick, but where is Koobuss' bully stick holder when I need them??

I also received a gift from my pals, Noah, Tess, Willow and Lucy in Australia. They sent me a training shoe stuffie (alas, now departed) a Good Cuz which is a work in progress, some delicious snackies and a lovely WFT pen which I MAY let J1 borrow from time to time.


The Good Cuz seems to be missing one of his feet. Oops!

Thank you so much Dewey, Asta Marie, Toby, Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy; these gifts really cheered me up and I absolutely LOVED them all.

So what else have we been doing? Well, J1 has expanded her Forever Foxed empire and now has a store on Etsy, as well as her regular website. Take a look at our new tapestry cards cos one of the designs is based on J1's interpretation of ME!

I'll be visiting your blogs and catching up shortly. Please forgive me for missing some of your birthdays and gotcha days. I'm so glad to be back...

Gus said...

Hey Jackson! You are looking spiffy and neat. And your groomer did a great job on blending the edges. Mine has sort of left a "ruff" of fur around the shaved area..I won't let muzzer call it a ruffle for obvious reasons! But she was quite gentle and did admire the scar, so I have forgiven her. At least she didn't make me look like a Bichon!

Seriously pal, it is great to hear from you. Keep up the good work getting well, and we will keep the good vibes comin your way
